While he’s been busy bracing for battle in Captain America: Civil War, Robert Downey Jr. recently teased a return as the great sleuth with Sherlock Holmes 3.
In an interview with The Shortlist, Downey Jr. teased that he and his team are working on the project at the moment, and he’s looking forward to discussions with director Guy Ritchie.
“If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have the whole [movie] done in a week,” he admitted. “When we’re making those Sherlock movies it is off the hook. [So] we’ll attempt to make one this year. It really is a big deal to go and do those movies. I’m tired all the time, but I’m so excited about it.”
If things work out with the script we could see a new Sherlock Holmes film in production by the end of the year. We’ll have more news as it comes.
